Have Equipment Will Travel

What's Jack up to? That's little stinker's getting into trouble, stealing shoes, socks and whatever else he thinks will disrupt the house this morning. Jack!

The inspiration for today's post came for last night's TV and a surprise 11:00 pm phone call from my Nana. Now you know when the phone rings at 11:00 it's usually never good. At first I felt panic then I realized The Bachelor had just gone off and it was Nana. I laughed as my poor DH was worriedly asking if her if she was feeling alright.

Here's me and Nana's recap of last night's TV:

First off Dancing with the Stars?
It was all about the men and they did surprisingly well. Sure some weren't great (Penn Jillette) but there wasn't a Master P in the bunch. I had to laugh at how serious they all were. Mario threw his Hip Hop persona out the window and turned into a ballroom maniac! The front runners for me were, Mario, Jason Tayor and Cristian de la Fuente. Good job guys traveling with the ladies across the floor.

Next up was the premier of The Bachelor. We got to meet the new Brit bachelor Matt Grant. A 27 year old global financier, whatever that means. According to Nana, he's nice and good looking, but there's something off about him that we just can't trust. We can't put our finger on it yet, but Nana got it right when she said somethings off with his mouth. Oh, Nana.
We also got to meet his bevy of way too eager beauties. Nana, nailed it right. Trashy! Why is there always the one girl who gets drunk on the first night and wears too many sequins? Why? Stacy did you really think that guy wanted you drunken panties in you pocket. Ewww. Bu-bye. and what's with biting a beer can? Huh?

In the end Matt worked the room like a champ. Sharing his love freely then breaking the hearts of 10 girls, but making the night of 15. Will you accept this rose? Yes. Oh yes! Travel on Matt.

We ended our conversation with talk about our brand spanking new Governor of the great state of New York, David Paterson. Mr. Paterson takes over for now ex gov/john/ client #9 Elliot Spitzer. Both Nana and I are are so proud that he's African-American and from our hometown of Harlem too! To top it off he's the first legally blind Governor in the United States ever. I proudly showed my son his swearing in on the Internet. Great day!

Not a few hours later does the news break that he too has had extramarital affairs years ago, but he and his wife worked through it with counselling. His wife admitted to having affairs of her own. Well there's a twist.
According to, Nana, with plenty of choice words not suitable for my PG blog, "What's with these bleeping men? It doesn't matter who they are whether they can see or not. All that matter is what equipment they got. You've got to look at all their bleeping bleeps with the screw eye!"
Amen, Nana!
Have equipment will travel.

I read your comment on my blog about the Topamax. I was on it for migraines as well. My migraines are now traveling the nerves in my face and causing severe facial pain. I did not do well on Topamax at all. It was true that I was not hungry, but the rest of the side effects were bad. I lost feeling in my nose and upper lip. I was ALWAYS in a horrible/bad mood. I had NO patience. I felt as though I was living outside my body. I could name a bunch more, but those were the really bad ones. I know take Depakote but will be stopping when my vitamins arrive. I can tell you the vitamin regimen if you are interested. Good luck.
P.S. I am rooting for Jason!

I really liked Matt. I think they've gone back to the original concept of "playboy" bachelors because the others make for boring TV. (which is one reason I stopped watching. I couldn't stay awake! That Prince Lorenzen dude and Dr. Travis? Boooring.) Matt was totally comfortable last night, which made it fun to watch. (well, until Stacey handed him her wadded up panties. I mean, REALLY?)

When Stacey got out of the limo, I knew she was going to be the one to watch. And that one chick in the white trash sea-green dress who did the twirl when she walked up to him. What was that? And biting the can? And playing the clarinet or the guitar? Whatever happened to just normal conversation?

I've been telling you for years how haaaaawt Jason Taylor was...now do you believe me? Too bad that I have to now share him with the world. As a die-hard (and tortured Miami Dolphin fan), I've had him to myself. Ahhh well...enjoy!!

Kwana said...

Thanks for the feedback CMB! I'm so sorry about you pain. Yes, please let me know about the vitamins! Go Jason!

Kwana said...

Hi Mel, I know I'm being hard on Matt. I'm hard on all men right now. Yes, the twirl was nutty. And the instruments? What was this, a pagent? Convo was out the window.

Yes, Mar, Jason was H-O-T. What a sleeper. Who knew? Well, you knew. I never pay attension to football players. I've been missing out. And he has the moves! Now you sure do have to share.

We need "Nana" to work for the government and straighten things out. She'd make them stand up tall and remember where they are from. I like her style,
no nonsense, and straightforward!

Kristen Painter said...

Oh yeah, there was some ho'ing going on during The Bachelor last night. Seriously. Now that's good tv! LOL

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

Well I didn't catch DWTS or The Bachelor. WHen I don't tune in to the first episode I generally don't ever watch a show. I hope Mario does well!

I too am sooo proud to have the first African-American governor in NYC in office! I just wish that these politicians could just keep their stuff in their pants and remain faithful to their wives!!!

P. S Your Nana sounds like such a wise and fun-loving lady! :-)

Kwana said...

Yes, Kristen it was some good Trash TV. Something to let go with.

Brown Girl you've hooked up with the wrong crowd! You can go to abc.com and watch the 1st episodes! Please give the Stars? a try. The ladies are tonight and Mario and Jason are worth it. Nana is the best!

Right, Patricia? She's in the Nana cheering section.

I'm really happpy about David Paterson though. And hopeful for him and New York.

Hallelujah Harlem!

I stayed in Harlem for couple of months when I was working in Manhattan. It was a beautiful culture in its own. So glad David Paterson is now in charge of the big apple!

Kwana said...

Thanks, Curiosity Killer. I'm so glad you liked Harlem and it's great that he's the Big man in Charge!
